It’s a Recipe Friday and today I’m sharing one of my favorite biscuit/scone recipes with you. I’ve been making these for a long time. The original recipe called for them to be made as scones, but I’ve always made them as biscuits. Either way, they’re delicious. Bake up a tin of these to have with your tea/coffee, while you knit this weekend!
1 1/3 cups melted butter
2/3 cup milk
3 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. baking powder
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins
Mix all liquid and dry ingredients by hand until just moistened. Stir in raisins.
For scones: Shape dough into 2 balls. Pat out on floured surface into two 8″ circles. Put on greased cookie sheet and score (cut halfway through) into 8-12 wedges. Sprinkle sugar over the top.
For biscuits: Roll dough out on floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. Put on greased cookie sheet and sprinkle sugar over the top.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Serve with warm butter, preserves or honey.
